Selecting multiple triggers to copy

Aug 10, 2013

Hi All,

A object in a slide has 5 triggers attached to it. I need to copy those 5 triggers and attach them to a different object.

I am not able to select multiple triggers at once (using pressing shift, control or any other way). What I am doing right now is copying one trigger at a time and pasting it to the target object.

I would like to know is there any way by which I can select multiple triggers at once and paste them to different object.

Thanks in advance

This is pretty frustrating. It would greatly improve development time if you could copy and paste all of an objects triggers to another.

Also, a hot key command for moving objects on the timeline up or down such as ( ctrl+shft+[ ). Since if you have more than one selected you can't drag them up or down for some reason. You have to go find the command in Format > Arrange>Send Backward. This takes forever.

Unless I'm unaware of this shortcut?

Hi David,

I have attached this conversation to a feature request that we have for the ability to copy/paste multiple triggers at a time.

You can certainly choose more than one item at a time on the timeline to shift them on the timeline (left/right), but the ability to move them up/down is limited to one.

I've submitted this feature request on your behalf as well.

Hi Everyone,
Great news! We just released another update for Storyline 360 and included a few important fixes and new features that you'll see in the release notes here.  
A new enhancement is now you can select multiple triggers and edit them all at once. Easily copy, paste, move, disable, and delete triggers in bulk!
Just launch the Articulate 360 desktop app on your computer and click the Update button for each application. Details here.

Hi there, Sergio. I'd love to help troubleshoot!

First, could you tell me more about what you're experiencing in the new trigger workflow? If you can record a Peek 360 video of the issue, that would be gold so we can see the problem in action!

With a little more detail, I'll do my best to help!
